Personalizing a Fitness Plan to Match Your Health Goals

Posted by David Cheatham, July 29, 2016

Fitness is important in all stages of life because regular exercise and movement will help you to maintain a healthy body. When you are retired, you will likely find that you have more time to focus on a fitness routine. Just because you have the time available, doesn’t mean that you need to spend hours in the gym every day!

Here are a few tips so that you can personalize your fitness plan to match your preferences:

Keep it Simple

There’s no reason to over-complicate your fitness goals. Simple movements are an effective way to keep your body strong and flexible. For example, you might consider going for a walk every morning instead of starting a rigorous routine to train for a marathon. Basic movements can help by boosting your heart rate without putting your joints and bones under too much pressure.

Choose an Activity that You Enjoy

The best way to stay consistent with your fitness routines is to find something that you enjoy. Look for classes or fitness activities that are fun. Some people enjoy golfing or tennis, while others find it more pleasurable to join a water aerobics class or to walk their dog.

Talk with local senior centers, recreation centers, and gyms to see if senior exercises classes are available. Some of these fitness centers have “silver sneakers” programs designed for people in retirement. You can join the class each day to have the opportunity to talk with other people and work on your health at the same time.

Hire a Trainer or Physical Therapist

Is there a specific fitness goal that you are trying to achieve? Whether you want to complete a 5k, or you would like to improve mobility in your legs after surgery, you should consider the advantages of working with a professional trainer. This person can customize your exercise routine to match your physical limits. They will stay by your side to guide you during your exercise sessions.

In addition to maintaining a regular exercise routine, it is also important that you have a high quality insurance plan to cover medical expenses. We offer the retirement insurance that you need! Contact us today to learn more about the options that are available.
